Post by Guest on Mon Aug 13, 2012 2:21 pm

As the general election ramps up (promising a struggle over the future of the social safety net), millions of Americans remain out of work. The unemployment rate has hovered around 8 percent throughout 2012, and a 5.2 million people have been out of work for more than 27 weeks.

The financial burden of long-term joblessness can be crippling, especially for those who've exhausted their 99 weeks of federally guaranteed unemployment insurance. And, for many, prospects look bleak for the foreseeable future, as many employers have no interest in applicants--even those with college educations and years of experience--if they have gaps in their resume.

It was against this backdrop that "60 Minutes" and Scott Pelley took a look Sunday evening at the millions of long-term unemployed Americans struggling to find their way back into the labor force.

Not that this isn't necessary to be discussing. But they keep acting like the 27 weeks is the big deal, what about those of us out since 2008. We are the group them keep ignoring. I don't get it.

Sending 60 minutes an email right not.

Thanks for posting this sick and tired.

I originally saw the report back in Feb on 60 minutes, so glad to see that job offers were made to some of these folks. CT should be proud of this story.

Too bad there wasn't some outreach program by employers and employment agencies for us unemployed and underemployed. I'm just concerned that when companies do REALLY begin hiring again, we'll be left behind!

That's what I mean jmain. These stories all are about those unemployed for 26 weeks, not those of us still struggling since 2008. Not that I don't feel for anyone recently downsized, I don't mean that, but millions are still struggling after 4 years.

That's why I have been reaching out to my local officials about these types of stories.
